    Answered . There is not nearly enough information here to answer this. I assume you mean first degree felonies? Was there a deadly weapon finding? If so, he has to do at least half of his time before he is probation eligible. Even if not, when or if he is paroled is up to the parole board. No one can tell you when or if that will happen. I would say on four cases he will be in most of the five. They will also take his criminal history into consideration.
